Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when they come... back for another movie!
Bad Boys For Life may have been marketed as the last hurrah for veteran LAPD officers and long-time friends Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett, but with the threequel leaving the door wide open for a fourth film, we all knew it was only a matter of time before those guys got back in the saddle.
Deadline has confirmed that Bad Boys 4 is in early pre-production, with Bad Boys for Life directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah returning to helm from a script by Chris Bremner.
Stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence shared their excitement via the following social media posts.
In Bad Boys for Life, Mike learned that he had a son named Armando (Jacob Scipio) who was being used as a hired killer to take out various targets for his mother, who had a serious grudge against her former lover.
Armando is set to prison, but Mike pays a visit to his kid in the final scene and offers him a path to redemption.
No word on whether Scipio will return for the fourth movie, but we'd say it's a pretty safe bet.
